Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. James 5:16NIV
The scripture above is the one I am working on memorizing at this time. I tried to find a different one, but the Lord kept giving me this one. . .the one I need at this time! He is like that!
The lesson that I am working on in my Discipleship Bible Study right now (Understanding and Knowing God by Andy and Kim Harrison) is on Prayer, and then I picked up another short study guide, that was on my shelf, Adventurous PRAYER from Women of Faith, and am really enjoying all of the lessons, and the daily devotions from JOURNEY that have been on trusting God, lately. I already had Proverbs 3:1-8 as my life scripture and have always trusted in Him, but I am getting the message loud and clear, not to ever forget to trust in Him always, no matter what!
I do take time each morning to read the devotion and scripture, but do not always make time daily to do a Bible Study lesson and to really spend a lot of time in prayer. I want to do that.
I love the weekends for all the reasons everyone else does, but I also love Saturday and Sunday, because I do take more time to do my Bible Study lessons, and to spend a lot of time in prayer. I started prayer journaling years ago, and filled lots of journals, and then stopped doing that on a consistent basis. My youngest son has filled lots of journals in the last 2 years, and is an inspiration to me. He carries his journal with him always.
God, our Heavenly Father, has asked us to come to him daily with all of our thanks and our needs.
Spending time in prayer can give us the peace of God.
I pray you have a blessed weekend!
